    If only the Greeks had discovered Tarmac

    April 28, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We have spent the day wandering around Old Rhodes Town, which is where we are staying. The streets are cobbled which gets a bit painful on the feet after a while. Luckily there is a bar every 20 yards so although progress was slow at least our feet got plenty of chances to recover!

    Not a lot else, except some enterprising glass boot salesman has made a fortune here...

    The day before the day we come home

    May 3, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    We wandered along to the restaurant where we have had breakfast several days and dinner at least twice. Every eaterie one walks past elicits cries of come in, coffee, beer, souvlaki etc, no matter what time of day. But at "our" place, we are greeted with handshakes, enquiries after our health, given huge portions of yummy yoghurt with honey and walnuts, and also a shot of "is wine made by the monks". I cannot imagine a long life for any of the brothers if they regularly imbibe their own produce. But they would die happy, shame about the liver.

    More wandering, beering, philosophising in the sun and sea breeze. Had the compulsory paddle. Bought the compulsory owl. Made the mistake of asking for a large beer, hoping for a pint, got another sodding 2 litre glass boot. Which costs more than dinner does 😱

    Probably returning to "our" place (I'm sure it has a name but meh who cares) for dinner as their feta-stuffed calamari is to die for.

    But tonight I shall not try to rekindle memories of Greek holidays 40 years ago, when Metaxa 5 brandy tasted pleasant. After last night's slug, I shall stick to drinking Nitromors paint stripper as it's slightly less caustic.

    Rhodos Stadt

    June 13, 2019 in Greece ⋅ 🌫 26 °C

    Heute, an einem der heisseren Tage während unserer Ferien, besuchten wir Rhodos Stadt. Wir waren vor allem in der Altstadt unterwegs, die mit ihren verschnörkelten Gässchen und den vielen Tavernen einen unglaublichen Charme ausstrahlte!Read more

    Sportforum PLIMMIRI mit Jonas Reckemann

    June 23, 2017 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Eigentlich hatte ich gehofft meine Wanderschuhe auf eine der grandiosen Küstenwanderungen bringen zu können. Und vielleicht auch in einer der sonnigsten Gegenden Europas etwas in der Sonne 🌞 abzuhängen...
    Aber bei gefühlten 40 Grad im Schatten sind "nur" Ausflüge nach RHODOS Stadt und LINDOS angesagt, und es ist ja auch eine Weiterbildung!
    Beachvolleyball-Olympiasieger Jonas R. ist nicht nur ein außergewöhnlicher Sportler, sondern auch ein ausgezeichneter Redner, Motivator und Trainer!
    Letzteres hat ER ausführlich am Strand unter Beweis gestellt. Allerdings mussten wir die Volleyballplätze zunächst ausgiebig wässern, um überhaupt barfüssig ins Spiel zu kommen...
    Die Insel RHODOS ist also gerne zu kurz gekommen, auch wenn es ein wirkliches Urlaubsparadies ist.
    Es soll nicht die letzte Reise zur Insel des griechischen Sonnengottes 🌞 Hélios sein!

    All roads lead to Rhodes

    August 27, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Today we had a little lie in no planned excursions ! As it is becoming normal the girls seem to do their own thing these days now they are with their group if teen friends so left to Mummy, Daddy and Lillian going to breakfast.

    Cheryl and me have been to Rhodes before so we knew Rhodes town was a good place to mooch and shop, so that’s what we did. The town was a lot busier and more expensive than we remembered. We have finally found the only positive thing about Brexit with the pound and euro at parity we didn’t have to do much mental calculation.

    We finally met up with the girls and a little walk into the old town through the beautiful harbour and old town walls, a few photos then hit the shops like a good’un ! I needed BO spray, 4.80 euros !!!! I must really stink. Lillian was taken by the rubber tomato you splat on the ground and it reforms into shape (she later bought one, took to the girls teens club, it burst but the young lad that did it ran back into town to get a replacement which was nice of him)

    We mooched a bit as usual moaning from Lillian as she wanted to buy the whole town, girls got some jewellery then Daddy got what he came for, a litre of beer served in a boot......only 9 euros, bargain !

    Anyway it was getting hotter and hotter and busier and busier so the girls, all three of them walked back to the boat while Mummy and Daddy walked along water front to look at some yachts and more of the castle walls as well as windmills.

    In the evening we went to the 47 lounge for dinner, Lillian had Spaghetti, the she went off to kids club the rest of us went to see the evening show, Starry Starry night, which featured the music on moulin rouge and marathon long can can, very impressive, after that Mummy, Daddy and Lillian watched mr and mrs in venue and the girls disappeared with their new friends to god only knows what time in the morning

    A fun day again
